    The way of tea is the way of all (my) inspiration. To be separated from the camel of divine wisdom would be less difficult than to forgo the insight afforded by cha.

      Same here, Lipton's lemon iced tea!

      But had I to choose strictly in the soda/pop area, I'd go with guaranį (Brazilian drink, with lotsa caffeine).

    ARGH! You didn't include the One True Drink of programmers! Dr Pepper
      duff gets a ++ for his choice of beverage, and because he spelled it properly.

    I was really hurting when I lived in Boston... couldn't find it anywhere. Cherry Coke is my second favorite - it was recently added to the pop machine in our computer science building and it runs out pretty often.
      I really love Dr. Pepper, but when all these other brands came out with cherry, I tried them and they were okay. But, I bet if Dr. Pepper made one of those it'd be the best. The cherry coke and wild cherry Pepsi was okay, but they're not really my gave types of pop. I tried the cherry Mt. Dew and it was better because I only drink Mt. Dew and Dr. Pepper. Maybe you could call it "Cherry Rush" "Cherry Splash" or something neat since Dr. pepper is such a neat and refreshing drink. And it has the best diet soda!!! Sincerely yours, Bev

    Why is Cherry Coke represented on the list but not Wild Cherry Pepsi?

    Dr. Pepper and Non-U.S. Beer. Nothing else matters.
      You don't like rice pop? :-)

    In Kenya they have a form of ginger beer called Stoney Tangawizi. It is a most inspired beverage.
      Jambo! (hello!)
      Stoney Tangawizi is a product of the Coca-Cola company. Tangawizi is the swahili word for Ginger. In Kenya it is served in 300 ml. bottles and in Tanzania in 350 ml. bottles. Another interesting Tangawizi fact is that in Kenya it is commonly refered to as "a stoney". In Tanzania it is refered to as "Tangawizi". Have any questions about Stoney Tangawizi? Kenya or Tanzania? Please e-mail me. I am always glad to share my love and knowlege of East Africa. I am currently trying to import a case of this great soda, any suggestions of how to obtain some? email redacted

        Whoever said tangawizi wasn't the swahili word for giner doesn't know swahili. I lived 10 years in Kenya and East Africa and Tangawizi is standard for ginger. They even have Kahawa ya tangawizi which is a hot ginger drink. Much like hot cider. Don't comment with facts unless you really know the facts.
        Yes, Stoney is made by Coca-Cola, but Coke doesn't sell it in the U.S. HOWEVER, if any of you Stoney lovers are near Atlanta, you can get a Stoney fix in the tasting room of the new Coke museum. I tried to convince them they should sell me some...but no luck. I had to be satisfied with drinking three straight glasses of it there.
        I want some too. I went to World of Coke yesterday and Stoney is one of the best products they make. Bring it to the U.S.!!
        Hello! I come to this side with google... I'm still back from kenya now and I miss Tangawizi so much! Hmm, my english is terrible, sorry .... but is there any chance to get tangawizi-stoney here in germany? Can I order it in Kenya (Mombasa) ?? Anyone a idea???? Thx and many longing greetings (about Kenya) :-)) Eve
        Thanks for all the suggestions for substitutes above. I just got two bottles from a friend who went to Tanzania and I'm gonna buy a bunch of Ginger beers before I open them and do a taste test to find the closest. I did as a lot of people and called coke asking them to sell in this country and they declined.
        Tangawizi does mean ginger. I was in Uganda recently and i asked the man who ran the organization that brought my team and I there and he told me that tangawizi is kiswahili for ginger. I love stoney, though, and would love to find it here in the states.
        hate to tell u guys im a big fan of tangawizi but the word "tangawizi" doesn't mean ginger they got the name from the town Tanga just above Dar and Wizi means thief so i dont know how u got ginger but no worries kwahali
        I found a similar drink called ginger beer in San Diego. Had Stoney in Kenya years ago and loved it. This is almost as good. Comes from Reeds in LA Haven't ordered yet, but I intend to.
        mimi ninapenda stoney!!! ("i love stoney!")
        Hi, The guy I am seeing is from South Africa and he loves stoney ginger beer from coke too. I looked all over and finally found a site that sells it. it is 9.95 for a 6 pack and then there is a 10 dollar shipping fee. It is somewhat expensive, but it was the only place I could find it. Their represenatives were very nice. If you happen to find a better place please let me know.
        I have a question. Is there in fact any ginger in Stoney's? It is my favourite drink too I drink it all the time. I was wondering but it doesn't mention ginger root in the ingredients, just 'flavourant'. I was browsing the internet and stumbled on this feed.
      Jambo! I was in Kenya last two weeks, and I discovered a drink that now is my favourite one... STONEY'S TANGAWIZI! Do you know if is possible to order it from Kenya? You Stoney Tangawizi fans all over the world, please contact me!!! (
        i sooo know what you mean. I came back from tanzania last summer and havnt had any since. I miss the way it makes you cough, the sugary bitterness, and its cheapness. Give me TANGAWIZI
        My name is Nicholas Tendwa from Kenya. I am able to source for you all the tangawizi soda you want. Email at I love this soda, you can introduce it to your friends and we do some business!

      The closest thing in the US is probably Vernors.

    I move to declare coffee a subtype of soda... or, put Root Beer up there. Either way, doesn't matter, for "all was created from /dev/null and shall return to /dev/null..."
      coffee can't be a subtype of cola for it has the properties of 'hot' and the methods of 'brew'. All can be subtypes of caffiene I suppose.
        They would actually both be child classes of beverage, and would share the private value of caffeinated. -E2
